Salvation

Notes

Per: Time to dust off the old Bic lighter. Marie: This is good evidence that it pays to take your time and let the album mature in its own time. Per: Well, this certainly is no filler. One of my favourites, really. Marie: One of your fourteen favourites on the album, that is.

– Have A Nice Day track by track, 1999

Group travels to Italy for “strange tourists” video shot by Anton Corbijn. Another splendid track from the album Have a Nice Day which yielded four hit singles, sold more than 2 million copies – and was regarded as a disappointment. C’mon…

– The Ballad Hits liner notes, 2002

Per: One of my favourites. Video directed by Anton Corbijn. A treat to work with him.

Roxette – Original Version 4:38

I can barely remember my past
Everything seems to disappear so fast
But I recall being jealous and alone
Gazing at the dreams going by

I started my life when you knocked on the door
Found something inside I didn’t dare to ignore
Now I do believe in flowers on the moon
I’ll swim beside the golden tide

You crashed by the gate
Captured my fate
Salvation
My eyes couldn’t see
I hardly breathed
I was diving so deep
Salvation

I’m down in the study holding on to my luck
Will you still love me when I call you up?
I gave you my body the power over me
Come on bring out the best in me

You crashed by the gate
Captured my fate
Salvation
My eyes couldn’t see
I hardly breathed
My heart was asleep
Salvation

Some will get broken
Others will get lucky like me meeting you
Don’t pass me by

You crashed by the gate
Captured my fate
Salvation
My eyes couldn’t see
I hardly breathed
I was down on my knees
Salvation

Some will get broken
Others will get lucky like me meeting you
Don’t pass me by
Don’t pass me by

I found salvation oh yea
You bring me salvation
I found salvation

Roxette – Lo siento [Original Version] 4:44

Poco a poco me olvido de tí
Es natural las cosas son así
Me equivoqué, buscaba un corazon
Hecho para mi, mi mitad
Depronto la vida cambió de color
El viento bailaba separándonos
Mi mundo feliz dejó de ser feliz
Y apenas nos mirábamos

Yo, voy a seguir, sola sin tí
Lo siento
Voy a olvidar lo que gané, lo que perdí, lo siento

Ahora me queda detener el reloj
Volver atras y ver que nos pasó
Comerme la vida, pasando de tí
Pensando solamente en mi, en mi

Yo, voy a seguir, sola sinti
Lo siento

Voy a olvidar lo que gané
Lo que perdí, lo siento

Algo que termina
Algo que se queda en el aire se va,
No volverá
Salvation, salvation
Yo, voy a seguir, sola sin ti
Lo siento

Voy a olvidar lo que gané
Lo que perdí, lo siento
Algo que termina
Algo que se queda en el aire se va
No volverá
Cuanto lo siento, cuanto lo siento
